BirdWeb: Seattle Audubon's Guide to the Birds of Washington State
Bird of the Week
Red-tailed Hawks breed throughout Washington State and are joined for the winter by other individuals from more northerly breeding territories. Look for them atop trees and light posts, scanning the ground for small mammals. Listen to the call of the Red-tailed Hawk. You may recognize it as one of the most widely - and inaccurately - used bird calls in Hollywood!
Birding Site of the Week
Located on the Washington Coast, Tokeland offers great opportunities to view wintering shorebirds, including Marbled Godwits (and perhaps the occasional Bar-tailed) - and wintering waterfowl like scoters, loons, and Brant.
